Insomnia Symptoms & Treatments
Though symptoms of insomnia may differ greatly between individuals, some of the more frequently experienced symptoms include:
- Difficulty falling asleep
- Cannot fall asleep after 30 minutes
- Inability to stay asleep as long as desired
- Daytime sleepiness
- Low energy
- Depressed mood
If left untreated, insomnia can lead to more serious conditions such as chronic fatigue, cortisol hormone imbalance, memory problems, and low grade inflammation that could give rise to further musculoskeletal issues.
The most common cure for insomnia is to medicate with anti-anxiety drugs such as Zolpidem, which is the #1 prescribed medication for insomnia. Unfortunately, long term use of Zolpidem and other anti-anxiety medications can lead to drug tolerance, rendering these treatments ineffective. Or, patients may experience uncomfortable side effects that lead them to seek out alternative insomnia treatments.
